This report is on the first Micrabaciidae (Micrabacia sp.) solitary corals to have been found in the Upper Cretaceous deposits of the Opole Trough. We also present descriptions of the first nautilids (Cymatoceras sp.; smooth-shelled Nautilidae), regular echinoids (Gauthieria radiata (Sorignet, 1850) and solitary corals (Parasmilia sp.) to have been found in the Lower Coniacian of the Opole region.
